Good school! Great opportunity to meet many different people and opened instate tuition opportunities for New York students as well. The population has a lot of commuters as it is a state school, however everyone is very friendly!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall I have had an amazing experience at WCSU, however, this is because I chose to get involved. The campus is highly commuter populated and many students tend to go home on the weekends, so more or less to many it feels like a glorified community college. But much like many other things its what you make of it and the time you put into it, if you go in looking to transfer you are going to miss an incredible community of individuals that encompass our clubs and organizations. Everyone who is involved has found a love for this school because they see all the different opportunities that are offered. I have taken the getting involved to a whole other level by joining several clubs, getting multiple jobs and going to as much as I could. There are a ton of free events that the involved students go to and can win tons of prizes, since our school is a big arts school we have a lot of events going on in the visual performing arts center that are absolutely incredible. Overall the university has a wonderful community and hundreds of things going on at throughout he semesters.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Western Connecticut State University has been incredible. The size of the campus is perfect, nowhere is more than a ten minute walk away. While the school runs on the small side, it allows you to have more opportunities for leadership positions and to be as involved as you would like. The class sizes are perfect because you get to know your professors and your professors get to know you. The faculty and administration want you to succeed and if you are willing to make the best out of the school, you will not be disappointed by what the school presents you with.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

WCSU is a great institution to begin your college career or if you're a returning student. The majority of the students are commuters. Most of the class sizes are less than fifty students. In my experience the science professors are committed to excellence and hold the students to high standards. They're almost always accessible outside of class and since the classes are small it makes the experience much more personal. Many of them will even reach out to you if you're absent or if you receive a grade below your normal range.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I came to Western Connecticut State University because of a financial choice, but hey...education is what YOU make of it. I have gotten involved in and out of the classroom and have seen what this campus really has to offer. It maybe just be "another state school" in your book, but I encourage you to look a little deeper, and take another look. If you are willing to make it happen, college is a platform, and Western Connecticut State University will provide you with a proper foundation.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am very happy where I'm at and I know I made the right decision to go to college here. The professors are always there for their students and make sure we are learning the right materials. There's a variety of classes for students to take whatever they are interested in. So many fun events at the school that make college so memorable for me. I made a lot of friends and great people here! I know that this school will guide me in the right direction for a successful career ahead!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Western Connecticut State University is an amazing college that provides students with a variety of above and beyond experiences. The students are friendly, and teachers are very welcoming. This is a place where it is easy to be yourself, and interact with people who share the same interests as you.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Western is affordable and near by for me. Also I love the professors, and there are many activities that are held: concerts, games, and much more! I never knew so much happened in my home town. The majority of professors offer office hours and are very willing to help. Others not so much, but overall great neat school!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

WCSU is a decent school with 2 decent campuses that are only 15 minutes away from each other (there is a shuttle that brings students back and forth). They are in good locations as the mall is only ten minutes away from each campus and the city is a little less than 2 hours away if you drive, but there is a train station close by and that will be about 2 hours. But the academics aren't all there, while I had some great professors I also had bad ones, not the school to get a good Econ degree if you ask me, I hope to transfer.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

School could be doing much better, instead of building that new police station, they could have spent the money for the midtown campus gym facility. We have a really great arts program but they don't have a good way of advertising events. Not everyone checks the school website or their emails for information like that, they would be better off with an Instagram page that would post events as they were approaching.
